Annunciation, incarnation and manifestation... These three words provide the connections between the seasons of Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. They are also links to the
major theme of the seasons: the son of God coming into the world.... These three seasons together draw sharply into focus the fulfillment of
God's promise to us in the birth of Jesus Christ our Redeemer.

The Crack in the Lens
If someone had asked Sherlock Holmes later in the year,
there is little doubt that he would have said his life began
that spring day in 1871 when he met Violet Rushdale
upon the moors and ended in the winter some months
distant. His mother would have disputed the former
claim, and many, both friend and foe, would come to
deny the latter.
Yet what happened that year nearly
cost him his life and his sanity, and strongly
influenced the man he was to become.
"Grit in a sensitive instrument, or a crack in one of his high powered lenses,
would not be more disturbing than a strong emotion in a nature such as his."
Dr. John H. Watson in "A Scandal in Bohemia," The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

Via Dolorosa: Stations of the Cross
Via Dolorosa (Lat. "sorrowful way") or Via Crucis (Lat. "the way of the Cross") is the path believed to be taken by Jesus from the place of his condemnation by Pilate to Mount Golgotha, the site of his crucifixion, and then to his grave
site. Early Christians continued the ancient Jewish practice of pilgrimages to Jerusalem. Out of this practice came the tradition of the Stations of the Cross
as a series of commemorative devotions or meditations. Author Diane Zike continues this tradition with this book of daily Lenten meditations.
Via Dolorosa: Estaciones de la Cruz
Meditaciones de Cuaresma

es el sendero que se cree fue percorrido por Jesús desde el lugar de su condena por Pilato al Monte
Golgota, el lugar de su crucifixión, y luego al lugar de su tumba. Los primeros cristianos continuaron
la antigua práctica judía de peregrinar hacia Jerusalén. De tal práctica nace la
tradiciónde las Estaciones de la Cruz como una serie de devociones conmemorativas y devocionales.
La autora, Diane Zike, continúa esa tradición com este libro de meditaciones dárias para
